Marietta Will Use ‘Otsego United’ Line

COOPERSTOWN – Republican Tim Walker is the winner of this round of the contest with county Rep. Andrew Marietta, D-Cooperstown/Town of Otsego, for the District 8 seat on the county Board of Representatives.

State Supreme Court Judge Eugene D. Faughnan today issued his opinion in an action brought by Marietta:  “Independent party names are only protected to the extent their petitions for the same office are filed first, for that election cycle.  There is nothing in the election law which provides any ‘year over year’ protection to an independent party’s name or symbol.”

COOPERSTOWN – The county Board of Representatives may be reentering the natural-gas fray in favor of the Constitution Pipeline project.

County Reps. Jim Powers, R-Butternuts, and Ed Frazier, R-Unadilla, the board’ vice chair, this morning volunteered to draft a letter for the board’s consideration as reps began focusing information from their strategic planning process into a half-dozen first-round priorities.

One of the “key initiatives” in the plan is:  “Support the Constitution Pipeline and Leatherstocking Pipeline in appropriate locations in the county.”
